Native American Hopi Carved Eagle Great Spirit Dancer Katsina Doll
Native American Hopi Carved Eagle Great Spirit Dancer Katsina Doll by Richard Gorman
Eagle (Kwahu) dances to increase the number of eagles and is a spiritual figure to the Hopi. He is treated with honor at all times as, among other responsibilities, the Eagle is the messenger between the people and their spirit guides. This carving shows the Eagle about to deliver his message to the gods. Richard did a wonderful job on the base of this carving, the pueblo, a pot, prayer feather and the Sunface. The back of the base has a beautiful profile carved eagle head.
